    Default New to the forums

    I've been reading on here for a while and just got registered so I thought I would introduce myself. I live in eastern NC and I fly C-130's for the Marine Corps. It's a great job and there are days I still can't believe that I get to fly $70 million airplanes for a living. I have a CLM that will be 6 in April that is a SH. When we got him I didn't know anything about the dog games, we just wanted a lab that I could take hunting. He is a great dog for the family and he does a good job of picking up the birds.

    I am looking at getting another puppy in the next 8-12 months and have a pretty good list of stud dogs that I am interested in. I plan on training this dog myself and I am starting to collect books to get myself schooled up. I have trained with a professional and I train my current dog 3-4 times per week just to keep him tuned up.

    I will be deploying overseas in the next month or so and I am planning on taking as much reading material as possible so that I can come back and when I get my new dog get him started on the right foot. Up to this point I have only had experience with HT's but with this next dog I would like to get in the FT game.

    I am planning on getting the smartworks books but any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome! Where are you depolying to? I hope wherever it is you are safe and kick some serious a$$ if you have to. Thanks for watching over our country's interests so we can have our silly dog games.

    Come and see me before you leave I may have some material for you. If you are doing any of the pre-deployment sims in the next week or so let me know.

    Semper-Fi,
    There is a pretty decent ret club right there as well
    Out of every 100 men, 10 shouldn?t even be there, 80 are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior and he will bring the others back.... Heraclitus, 5 B.C

    First, Thank you for your service and keep yourself safe.
